What is the difference between a power of attorney and a conservator?

For one, a power of attorney is limited to financial assets, whereas a conservatorship, also called an adult guardianship, can have two components: a conservatorship of the estate (providing management of money and other property) and a conservatorship of the person (health care and living decisions)

Obowiązki opiekunów osób niepełnosprawnych traktowane będą jak praca

W praktyce oznacza to , że osoby, które opiekowały się niepełnosprawnymi, po śmierci podopiecznego będą miały prawo do świadczeń przedemerytalnych oraz do zasiłku dla bezrobotnych. -

Opiekun prawny czy kurator.
Podstawowa różnica między opiekunem prawnym a kuratorem jest taka, iż opiekun prawny jest ustanawiany dla osoby całkowicie ubezwłasnowolnionej, a kurator – dla osoby częściowo ubezwłasnowolnionej. -
